Bright Spaces, Welcome Places promotes LGBTQ+ affirming policies for mental health agencies in order to create welcoming environments for LGBTQ+ people.
Bright Spaces, Welcome Places created four original art prints through a community art process involving members of the LGBTQ+ community and artists in developing imagery of LGBTQ+ resiliency, wellness, and pride. The resulting art prints are awarded to mental health agencies adopting two or more recommended policies.
Bright Spaces, Welcome Places maintains a directory of mental health agencies that have adopted policies welcoming and affirming LGBTQ+ people. Community members can search the directory for mental health services knowing the agencies have made a commitment to ongoing education and inclusive policies.
Bright Spaces, Welcome Places wants to include your agency in our New Mexico directory. Agencies that adopt three or more recommended policies will be awarded an LGBTQ+ community art print to be displayed in your space. In addition, your agency will be listed on our statewide directory. Learn more.
